10 year old Kenmore Ultra is leaking early in the washing cycle. Wondering if this is worth fixing or need to bite the wallet and buying a new one. I am worried about affecting the new cabinets even though the dishes seemed to be clean on the two occasions that the dishwasher has leaked. Only need a somewhat simple machine- I'd appreciate any suggestions as to what brands I should research if buy is the conclusion. Thanks.
At 10 years old I wouldn't put much if any money into it. Do check the water connections as it may be something simple that just needs to be tightened or a washer replacement. Replacing the valve is a simple and inexpensive fix but don't bother going ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher
Broken dishwasher? My dishwasher keeps trying to drain water, even though there isn't any to drain. I have reset it a million times but it won't start a new programme. The drain is clear. Is this a computer software problem? Can it be repaired, or should I just buy a new one?

I've a Kenmore - Whirlpool dishwasher purchased in 7/2002(665.17574200), which seems clogged. T The ''Accumulator Assembly'' (8268429) filter is clean, and I've stripped the unit down to the plastic components. This has happened once before, and the repair person cleaned some kind of secondary filter, but I can't locate that filter on the parts diagram. I'm guessing it's below the ''Protector inlet'' (8268390). Either I buy a new dishwasher, which seems a waste, or I find out how to clear the

CDA dishwasher is constantly beeping part way through a wash cycle and obviously stops washing at this point. CDA have been out three times in the space of four years and it costs £79 each time. Could have bought a brand new dishwasher by now. The man who repaired mentioned it was the sensor and showed us how to clean it but I don't know anyone else with different makes who have to go through this hassle every two or three washes and this is now making now difference.
I need a new dishwasher What do you recommend between Kenmore Elite. Quietguard Ultra. Model no. 665.77962K703 versus LG model LDF7920 I get conflicting information- a repairman we know says LG is the better make, needing far fewer repairs than Kenmore in general ( this washer I am thinking of buying was made by whirpool, I was told at the Sears store) But online reports claim LGs need the most repairs. HELP OR... do you have something else to recommend?

I purchased a Whirlpool dishwasher in either July or August 2009 from Best Buy. It is not cleaning all my dishes. I have tried 3 different types of soap--the packets that came with it; powder; and liquid hoping that it would work. I have loaded light and heavy. I have tried the normal and light settings with rinse, hot water or not. They are just not getting clean. And the dispensers are not totally emptying. I already had to have a new dishwasher sent because the first one was damaged on
I fixed this problem by calling Whirlpool directly which I should have done to begin with. I wasted $20 on your person. I waited and waited while the screen said everyone was busy. And then I was cut off. When I went back to the website, your per ... Whirlpool Dishwashers

We hav a aMaytag MJD 2000 AAW dishwashing machine displaying E3 which according to the manual means the water element does not work properly or th efilter mesh is blocked. The macine is not warming at all so we suspect the heater element is the problem. We where wondering how expensive this is to repair. Is it worth repairing or would buying a new appliance be a similar cost?

When the cyle is complete the dishes are cold and wet and greasy ones not washed properly. I think it needs a new heater but the person who came out to look at it said it was because it is in my garage (?). I have always had my dishwasher in the garage and never had this problem. If it is the heater, is it an expensive repair or would I be better off buying new. I have a six year old Zanussi de6754

Once the "start" is pressed, the "reset" option on the same button will not turn it off. This dishwasher is in a new place we're buying, and we're not ready to run a whole cycle to see if the machine works because there's a minor plumbing repair needed under the sink which can't be done till the closing, and there could be a leak. Meanwhile the two green lights and beeping can't be turned off.
Just un-plug it for now,....then of coarse when you can run it plug it back in for test,....ya never know, just un-plugging it could very well reset itself and work fine. this is the way with alot of the newer things,....good luck ... GE GLD5800L Dishwasher
I have a KUDK01IL or KUDL01IL that I purchased in 2003 and it went from quite to a very loud wash. Now the dishwasher is not working. Is the motor gone or is something preventing the motor from "kicking-on?" There is water and heat and pannel lights work. Appreciate your help to let me know if this can be repaired or if I should buy a new machine. Thanks.

I have a triton XL model GSD6900 that does not fill with water. I replaced the fill valve about 8 months ago. Have checked the inlet valve and coil shows continuity. Ran it thru a cycle and found no voltage at the valve. I assume the problem is in the timer. If this is the case should I have it repaired or buy a new dishwasher.

We have a new Bosch SHE55M15UC. It worked fine for 4 months, now it leaves a dirty looking film over all the glasses. A service guy came buy and said he tested it and everything is working fine. He said to try a different brand detergent or try using jet dry. The dishwasher still seems to be doing the same thing no matter what we use. Any suggestions?
